Welcome to the Post-Weekend Push with Brian Tome.
Time for your first Weekend Push. We’re searching for the blessed life. What does the word “blessed” mean to you? How do you know if you’re living the blessed life? (PS: Don’t steal my Disney-World-misters metaphor. You gotta find your own.)
It’s storytime. The Bible says it’s “more blessed to give than receive.” Everyone share a time in your life when you were on the giving end of generosity. What impact did that make on your life?
I said this weekend that I’d been a weenie boy for avoiding the topic of generosity. What is your experience with the mixing of church and money? Acknowledging the past, good or bad, frees us up so that we can move forward to a new place.
God is a giver. Psalm 103 tells us to “forget not his benefits.” Make a list. What has God given you? Use this list to push you into new territory with him today. You can trust him.
There are four hearts we can have toward generosity:
A greedy heart (MINE!)
A grieving heart (why did I give?)
A generous heart (I’ll give because God says to)
A grateful heart (I give because God has rescued me)
Examine yourself honestly. Where do you fall right now? Where would you like to be 5 weeks from now?
